After the death of her parents, cousin Fanny was raised by her Uncle Humphrey Marshall. Under the ,tuition of her aunt, Mollie Marshall, she grew up into a charming womanhood. She married first, in Woodford.
During her widowhood, I often saw her. .She spent much of her time in Mason, and was admired for both beauty and accomplishments. Mr. Adams was a widower of Pittsburgh, with several daughters, one of whom married Dr. Alex. K. Marshall (636).
Mr. Adams’ father left .quite an estate to the children of his son Gilbert. The latter was at one time a merchant in Washington, Ky., and subsequently at Mt. Carmel. He died at the latter place and was buried on ” The Hill,” in Washington. A handsome monument marks his grave, with only his name and dates of birth and death.
